Barack Obama’s victory speech in Grant Park, Chicago
America, we have come so far. We have seen so much. But there is so much more to do. So tonight, let us ask ourselves – if our children should live to see the next century; if my daughters should be so lucky to live as long as Ann Nixon Cooper, what change will they see? What progress will we have made?
This is our chance to answer that call. This is our moment.
is it too cheesy to say : yes we did! (?) i’m still in happy disbelief, almost can’t believe last night happened. i woke up smiling and still dancing. DC last night – amazing. i was at U & 14th St – people dancing in the street, on top of bus stops, high fives and hugs all around. i so wish one of my friend’s had a car with a sunroof so i could stand and cheer as we drove through the streets. change is going to come: end of Global Gag Rule, closer to universal healthcare, and this step closer to equality. the whole time i kept thinking about how i’ll be able to retell where i was, and how it was the night it happened. kids can believe they can become the next president because it really happened. next step: how to be at the white house on inauguration day.
